    Wash the glass jar well. A globe shaped jar is most appropriate for this. Turn over the jar lid and use the silicone sealant to attach the figurines to it. This way, when you put the jar upside down, the figurine will appear straight up. The figurines allow you to customize the snow globe according to your wedding. Choose figurines which revolve around the theme like a bride and groom dancing. Choose figurines which are water resistant and will not rust in the water.

    Now you have to prepare the solution for the globe. Fill the globe with distilled water, leaving only ¬Ĺ inch room at the top. Now add several drops of the mineral oil or glycerin¬†into it. You can also use baby oil for it. The oils will keep the snow suspended in the solution and prevent it from settling down to the bottom.
